We are a non-profit organisation that initiates and supports a decolonisation process based upon Inuit values as well as helping to create equality for Inuit.
Who we are
Nalik is a non-profit organisation established in Denmark on 28th January 2018, with the aim of providing a richer narrative about Kalaallit Nunaat Greenland from an Inuit perspective.
Our goal is to shed light on Greenland’s history and review the concept of decolonisation in collaboration with other organisations and researchers. Our approach involves holding public events in the form of presentations and discussions, so that we can create a decolonisation process through the exchange of knowledge.
Our guiding principles
Exchange of knowledge and perspectives
An open conversation room so we can hear your voice
Understanding each other through dialogue

Through her education Naduk has a historical knowledge about the Inuit history and culture and the historical colonialism between Greenland and Denmark. She is a passionated Inuit artist who likes to discover new disciplines and ways of expressing her culture and thoughts. In her work she has a creative mindset on how to face and approach the current postcolonial challenges in the Inuit and Danish society and is a keen speaker in several podcasts productions e.g. Mino talks, that represents minority cultures and groups.
Is very interested in inuit drumsinging- and dance, which is also the subject of the masters she is currently writing on.
She has worked a short period of time at an orphanage in Uummannaq, helping with music education, which created a desire to improve the terms for greenlandic children and young people, among other things with the help of creative projects like music, and the communities it creates.
She is a singer and songwriter, coming from a family background where the inuit music practise has been very present, and she has performed with inuit music and is interested in connecting activism with creative projects.
Siri has a background in sociology, medical anthropology and public health. Throughout her work Siri has specialised in inequality and inequity in health specifically with a focus on minorities primarily within the field of sexual health and HIV prevention. Through her work, Siri has focused on post colonialism and how that affects adherence and uptake of health services. She is interested in culture-bound syndromes and how they are perceived and understood.
Siri believes strongly in intersectional approaches, especially at a time where identity politics are discussed broadly. Inequalities interact with one another and it is important to have a holistic mindset when approaching unfairness and injustice in society.
Siri is involved in Nalik because she is passionate about Nalik’s values and because her family has experienced and lived through the challenges that come with merging Inuit and Danish cultures and values. Her own understanding and experiences of her Inuit heritage has been shaped by narratives that she feels has been coloured by the fact that Inuit people are in large marginalised within Danish society.
She is excited about the opportunity to engage in conversations within Nalik to work towards a richer understanding of Inuit history and values within the Danish context.
